Man Down
Man Down condition is determined based upon the radio tilt angle or a combination of radio tilt angle and the lack of radio motion. Man Down feature is an alternate way to activate the Emergency feature if Emergency has been programmed in your radio. Your radio automatically activates Emergency Alarm or Call when the radio achieves or passes a tilt angle threshold or a combination of the angle threshold and radio motion below the motion sensitivity level, depending upon how the radio is programmed. The radio must stay in this condition for a preprogrammed amount of time before the Emergency Alarm or Call is activated. Note: It is recommended that an Emergency button is preprogrammed in order to allow the user to exit the emergency condition.

The Man Down feature has three phases:

i ii

iii

The radio senses the Man Down condition and Pre-Alert Timer is initiated. Man Down condition continues for the time duration defined in the Pre-Alert Timer field. At the end of this time, the radio alerts the user on the Man Down status with an audible alert tone and Man Down text on the screen. The Post-Alert Timer also initiates at this point. Man Down condition continues for the time duration defined in the Post-Alert Timer field. Once the timer expires, the Emergency alarm is transmitted. The Man Down Clear function is used in this phase to cancel the Man Down condition.

Advanced Features

The following scenarios affect the timers:

Pressing the PTT button suspends the Man Down timers;


releasing the PTT button reinitiates the Pre-Alert Timer.

If the radio is preprogrammed to horizontal only, it must be worn in a vertical position otherwise the Man Down alert may be inadvertently triggered. When the radio is programmed with Man Down feature, special care is required when charging the radio with a wall mounted charger. See Handling Your Radio on page 112 for details.

 Post-Alert Timer
This timer sets the amount of time the radio needs to remain in the Man Down condition before the Emergency alarm is transmitted. When the Post-Alert Timer is initiated, the radio alerts the user with an audible tone and displays the Man-Down text. See Exiting Man Down Feature on page 61 to exit Man Down feature.

 Alerting User When Man Down Feature is


Triggered
The Man Down alert tone volume is directly related to the radios volume. Ensure that the radios volume is loud enough so that the user does not miss the Post-Alert tone. Note: If the radio is programmed with Silent Emergency, the radio inhibits the alert tone and visual alert associated with the emergency feature. If the radio is programmed in Surveillance Mode, the radio inhibits all tones and lights on the radio including the Man Down tones.

 Pre-Alert Timer

Advanced Features

This timer sets the amount of time that a Man Down condition must be present before the radio-user is warned of the Man Down condition. When the radio detects that it has returned to the vertical position or when the radio detects motion, the Pre-Alert timer stops and is reset.

The Global Positioning System (GPS)


This feature uses information from the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites orbiting the Earth to determine the approximate geographical location of your radio, expressed as latitude and longitude or MGRS format per request from customer. The availability and accuracy of this location information (and the amount of time that it takes to calculate it) varies depending on the environment in which you are using the GPS feature. For example, GPS location fixes are very difficult to obtain indoors, in covered locations, between high buildings, or in situations where you have not established a clear broad view of the sky.

Inside of buildings, trains, or other covered vehicles Under any other metal or concrete roof or structure

Advanced Features

Between tall buildings or under dense tree-cover In temperature extremes outside the operating limits of your
radio Even where location information can be calculated in such situations, it may take longer to do so, and your location estimate may not be as accurate. Therefore, in any emergency situation, always report your location to your dispatcher. Note: Even where adequate signals from multiple satellites are available, your GPS feature only provides an approximate location, usually within 20 meters from your actual location, but sometimes further away.

 Understanding the GPS Feature


The GPS technology uses radio signals from earth orbiting satellites, to establish the location coordinates, maximizing your view of clear unobstructed sky is essential for optimum performance. Where adequate signals from multiple satellites are not available (usually because you cannot establish a view of a wide area of the sky), the GPS feature of your radio will not work. Such situations include but are not limited to:

Keep in mind that the accuracy of the location information and the time it takes to obtain it varies depending upon circumstances, particularly the ability to receive signals from an adequate number of satellites. Note: The satellites used by the GPS feature are controlled by the U.S. government and are subject to changes implemented in accordance with the Department of Defense GPS user policy and the Federal Radio Navigation Plan. These changes may affect the performance of the GPS feature on your radio.

Underground locations

User-configurable location coordinates.

Emergency Last Known Location Destination

For your initial fix, hold the radio in the face position. Stay in the open. The GPS feature works best where there is
nothing between your radio and a large amount of open sky. Coordinates can be deleted one at a time, or all at once. Note:

 The Outdoor Location Feature (Using GPS)

Coordinates cannot be deleted.

Advanced Features

This feature allows you to determine your current location using a location menu, as well as your current distance and bearing in relation to another location. Radio location may be requested and reported over-the-air. Your radio stores up to a maximum of sixty (60) programmable location coordinates, also known as waypoints. When the memory is full, the next waypoints automatically replaces the oldest waypoints in the radio.

The radio automatically exits the feature, if the feature inactivity timer is enabled, when the radio is left idle and the timer expires. You will hear the Menu Inactive Exit Tone upon feature exit.

Motorola details the disassembly, test, and reassembly procedures along with necessary test equipment needed to inspect, maintain and troubleshoot radio seals in the radios service manual.

 Cleaning Your Radio


To clean the external surfaces of your radio:

Helpful Tips

1 Combine one teaspoon of mild dishwashing detergent to


one gallon of water (0.5% solution).

2 Apply the solution sparingly with a stiff, non-metallic, shortbristled brush, making sure excess detergent does not get entrapped near the connectors, controls or crevices. Dry the radio thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth.

3 Clean battery contacts with a lint-free cloth to remove dirt or


grease. Do not use solvents to clean your radio as most chemicals may permanently damage the radio housing and texture. Do not submerge the radio in the detergent solution.

If the radio battery contact area has been


submerged in water, dry and clean the radio battery contacts before attaching a battery to the radio. Otherwise, the water could short-circuit the radio.

If the radio has been submerged in water, shake


the radio well so that any water that may be trapped inside the speaker grille and microphone port can be removed. Otherwise, the water will decrease the audio quality of the radio.

Caution

Do not disassemble the radio. This could


damage radio seals and result in leak paths into the radio. Any radio maintenance should be performed only by a qualified radio technician.
